Partial TV Broadcast
Shea Stadium, New York - July 7, 1964
Most of the first three innings of the memorable 1964 All-Star Game at brand new Shea Stadium is now on DVD for the first time ever! (Unfortunately, original TV broadcast footage of the rest of the game, in which Johnny Callison smashed a game-winning "walk off" 9th inning home run, has never been found). On this new DVD is all 25 minutes of the original television broadcast that does exist - the bottom of the first inning through the end of the third inning of play, with Buddy Blattner calling the play-by-play action for NBC.
You'll see every player in the starting lineups except Mantle, Killebrew and Allison come to bat at least once and Willie Stargell pinch hits for N.L. starter Drysdale in the third inning.
Even partial-game TV broadcasts from before the days of home VCRs (1975) are very rare. This is only the second oldest known TV broadcast segment of any All-Star Game known to exist, and now you can go back more than 50 years in time and watch this action unfold once again!
